Fadel Adib is an associate professor at the MIT Media Lab and Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. His work pushes the limits of wireless sensing: to monitor climate change in the oceans; to impact food production, health, and space exploration; and to see through walls.In this episode, MIT President Sally Kornbluth talks with Adib about his work and how he’s inspired to solve pressing global issues. Along the way, they discuss his belief in the importance of inspiring others and democratizing advanced tools and technologies, as well as his early life in Lebanon and his family-held belief that education has the power to change lives.Links:* Fadel Adib (https://www.mit.edu/~fadel/)* The Big Bang Theory episode (https://youtube.com/watch?v=-7hJsis-Kpg)* Emerald Innovations (https://emeraldinno.com)* Signal Kinetics group (https://signal-kinetics.media.mit.edu)* Cartesian Systems (https://cartesian.systems)* MIT 100k Entrepreneurship Competition (https://mit100k.org)* Sensea (https://sensea.ai)Timestamps:(01:38) - The superpower question(07:48) - Detecting emotions through walls and The Big Bang Theory episode(09:00) - Ocean work and implications for aquaculture, climate change, and space exploration(17:50) - Early life in Lebanon(21:10) - Democratization of technology(25:52) - Family and the importance of education(28:26) - Local impact(29:24) - Public education through videosShow notes and transcript:https://news.mit.edu/podcast/podcast-curiosity-unbounded-episode-4-build-your-own-superpower-then-share-it-world (https://news.mit.edu/podcast/podcast-curiosity-unbounded-episode-4-build-your-own-superpower-then-share-it-world)Join the mailing list or send us feedback:https://eepurl.com/ixPQPA (https://eepurl.com/ixPQPA)
